The first individuals will start promptly at 3pm and riders will start on a one minute interval.

General Race Info

Cyclists and Triathletes get ready for the return of the Jump off Rock Hill Climb presented by Hunter Subaru on Sunday, August 8th at 3 pm. The hill climb, time trial, cycling race made its debut in 2017 and returns this summer with much anticipation to Laurel Park located in Hendersonville, North Carolina. 

The cycling race is for all abilities! Test your fitness and challenge yourself to ride up this five-mile climb as fast as you can. This is an individual, time-trial-style event designed to challenge any type and ability of cyclists. You will be racing against the clock and will leave in one-minute increments. It is a race against yourself. This is not a mass start event. 

The one-way, time trial race starts at the Town of Laurel Park offices and goes up, up, up Laurel Park Scenic Highway to the top of Jump off Rock where panoramic views await you at the finish line. This event will be professionally produced and timed. 

Not only will this ride challenge you, there are also prizes and awards for the King and Queen of the Mountain and random giveaways to finishers. You don’t have to be the fastest to win in our giveaways!

The in-person Jump off Rock Hill climb coincides with the self-serve Lung Buster Time Trial Series that takes place this summer. If you are currently registered for the Series, you will be able to register for this grand finale challenge event for free. The Lung Buster Time Trial Series is a series of cycling events in Western North Carolina held with the intent of providing all participants a professional racer experience, no matter how fast or experienced you are. 

We look forward to seeing our community of cyclists challenge themselves in what is sure to be a lung-bustin’ race to the top of Jump off Rock. 

VIEW RIDE WITH GPS ROUTE

No warm-ups are allowed on Laurel Park Scenic Hwy after 2:50pm.  Follow the rules of the road, stop signs and speed limits when traveling back downhill after the ride. There is no parking available at the top of Jump off Rock.


This in-person event also coincides with the last ride of the virtual Lung Buster Time Trial Series. If you are currently registered for the Series, you will be able to register for this event for free! If you have not received instructions via email from the Series, please reach out to support@idaph.net

 

OPEN TO ALL PARTICIPANTS, IN LBTT OR CYCLIST THAT WOULD LIKE TO JUST PARTICIPATE IN A SINGLE EVENT. THE LIVE AUGUST TIME TRIAL WILL BE A HILL CLIMB AT JUMP OFF ROCK IN LAUREL PARK, STARTING NEAR HENDERSONVILLE.

Let’s face it, sometimes we all need a little help getting up these giant WNC hills. We’re allowing e-bikes at this event and they will be scored in  their own category, so all riders are welcome!

Will provide mechanic support at the event. Overall & random giveaways will be from Sycamore Cycles.

The 2020 Lung Buster Time Trial Series with a twist

by Daphne Kirkwood, Race Director

The Lung Buster Time Trial series is a five-part series of competitive cycling events. The events take place here in Western North Carolina at five different routes, and the goal is to provide a fun and professional race experience for cyclists while adhering to safe social distancing guidelines. All levels and abilities are welcome!

This series of events is a great way to challenge yourself and provide goals. It doesn’t matter what your current speed is; it is about pushing yourself beyond what you would normally push during a regular, solo training ride.

The Lung Buster Time Trial Series is about being part of a community of cyclists who strive for the same goal. It is also about supporting small business. Our iDaph Events company has been changed significantly due to COVID-19, and your participation in events like these help keep our business alive!

History of the Lung Buster

The Lung Buster Time Trial Series was an iDaph event a couple of years ago, but it took a hiatus when time trial series in general started to wane, due to the popularity of cyclocross and gravel events. But COVID-19 changed that.

When COVID-19 hit us, the cycling governing bodies came to the conclusion that time trials are the safest way to have a goal and some fun right now. As soon as I thought about bringing life back into the series, and I figured out there was a way to do it safely and quasi-virtual, it was a no brainer for me.

Time Trial Series offers safe social distancing options

Due to the pandemic and social distancing and event gathering restrictions, the 2020 Lung Buster Time Trial Series has a twist with extended durations for participation for each event. A Brand New Virtual Series is also available, where cyclists can participate ANYWHERE at ANYTIME!

The five different courses will be marked by our iDaph Team, and we will have certain evenings where we will come and cheer on the cyclists as they complete their segments.

Our unique mix of different racing environments allows riders of different strengths and focuses to level the playing field amongst competitors. Also, having five separate events means that one poor showing will not ruin your opportunity to do well in the series as a whole. Whether you’re an elite time trial champion or a recreational rider, our time trial seris offers multiple categories to choose from.

Remember: You don’t have to kill it. Your personal best is what you can do RIGHT NOW.

Start from wherever you are right now. It doesn’t matter if you were breaking records a few years ago in time trials, triathlons, etc.. Or if you were in the best shape of your life six months ago and you let it go due to stress, COVID19, life, kids… it is fine to start wherever you are at in your life and go for it!

Your personal best if yours in this present moment it is what you can do right now!

We as a community of cyclists need something fun and challenging to look forward to in this uncertain and difficult time.
